On tap at Death Valley, Morningside. A nice reddish brew with a hoppy nose. Strong on both malt and hops and the malts tip the scales toward a sweeter finish than most American Strong Ales. Still my kind of beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the 6-pack of bottles, pours red with white collar. This is sweet and some sour. I’ve got some questions about this beer: They have used a rarely grown hop; if it were a good hop it would be grown 24/7. The deScription of this beer uses phrases like triple and dry hopped but all I taste is malt and sugar. It is ironic that a beer named after one of the most uncomfortable movies I have ever seen would also have such uncomfortable characteristics, but just like I never wanted to re-watch that movie, I probably won’t buy this again. Good point: it’s strong, Food pairing: empty stomach

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy reddish amber color with a smallish off white head on there. Nose is earthy with a bit of grassiness to it. Taste is slightly bitter with a hint of burnt caramel. Ok, but not great.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is rye and sweet caramel upfront, some slightly earthy hops and warm alcohol. Reasonably bright with a small but lasting head. Theres some spice from the rye, but its dominated by a pretty one dimensional bitter/caramel flavour that runs through to a lingering bitter finish. Not bad, but not great either.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, poured into a long stemmed tulip glass (19/07/15). Hazy red amber colour with a small off-white head. Medium body and soft/medium carbonation. Sweet aroma - dark fruits, caramel and malt. Flavour of sweet fruit, caramel, malt and hops. Bitter aftertaste but the sticky sweetness overwhelms the beer. Drinkable, but a little too sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Bridgeport. Clear light amber colored beer with a white head. A lot of caramel malts, bread, and sweet fruits. There’s a little bit of a perfume character to the nose. Very floral. The flavor is a little bitter on the back end, but it’s mostly sweet caramel and berry sort of esters. Pretty sweet and malty, which I guess is to be expected.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a 1"+ sudsy off white that that drops very slowly with moderate lacing. Color hazy reddish-brown with moderate amount of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: nice blend of aromatic hops with caramel and yeasty bread dough.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied and fluffy with a somewhat damp finish and lingering alcohol burn in the throat.
Flavor: not what I expected from the aroma. Lack of sweet malt presence leaves with beer with a quite bitter grapefruit and citrus rind flavor along with a strange soapy flavor. There is a some slight caramel and malt sweetness in the middle of the taste, but the initial and following hop bitterness quickly overwhelms any balance.
Overall: really disappointed in this one. Reds and Strong Reds are usually quite enjoyable to me, but this beer seems to be a muddled mess.
